Mon Amour de Toutes les Choses Francaises or My Love of All Things French Continued

I have really enjoyed this first day of Mon Amour de Toutes les Choses Francaises or My Love of All Things French . Thank you to those who have participated thus far. I have really enjoyed seeing your collections and fun french goodies. I look forward to seeing more tomorrow.

Below I have added several photos of items I have made with a french theme and also some more of my favorite finds. I will be back on Tuesday to announce my first participant winner and to give you a show of even more of my french collections!



My altered travel round robin book. A work still in progress.














Vintage receipts from a store in Paris. These are one of my favorite finds ever!




French educational game that only has men pictured for each of the occupations.













A book event that I hosted called "Le Emotions de la France". Each participant made a page, copied it to make one for each participant, sent their copies to me, and I then bound them into books for everyone. It was worth every bit of work put into it!


I have always loved the look of cracked paint. This is a sign that I made out of a piece of wood from an old out building. It now hangs in my kitchen.


My first Itty Bitty Book pages. It doesn't matter what theme these books have, I still usually give them a french twist.


A tile that I made a long time ago. I don't even remember how I did it but would love to make another one.



I did an event where you were supposed to "bling your birdhouse". What is bling without an Eiffel tower?


These were made with one of my favorite rubber stamps. Wait until you see all of the Eiffel tower rubber stamps I have. I'm obsessed!




I can't even tell you how many tags and card sets I have made with an image of the Eiffel tower. Most of these were sold in my shop, but some are favs that I just can't give up.










Have a wonderful evening!
